KU professor who used n-word in class discussion is placed on leave

Except he's referred to Ted Cruz as one of the smartest students he's ever had. And Dersh can be a bit narrow minded on American-Israeli issues.

Two Kansas lawmakers who voted against block grants removed from education committee

And the purge continues. Can't wait for show trials. I know most in the GOP are wrong on policy, but I didn't realize that so many were sheep.

Lawmakers in favor of Medicaid removed from Kansas House health committee

And yet these people won't leave the party. We Democrats aren't that bad. Granted our political gatherings tend to be just beer and sandwiches, not the decked out buffets and open bars as the GOP.

Cheick Diallo's legal guardian hires attorney as Diallo continues battle to become eligible

Tall athletic kids from Africa don't just drop out of the sky. Of course they come here to live with patrons. No different than the AAU kids that are picked up in 8th grade here. If these kids would organize like the students at Mizzou, they'd say screw the NCAA and all start to play in Europe and make that the true minor league for the NBA. I'm surprised that this hasn't happened more already. I'm guessing the AAU types don't want to risk loss of control sending these kids to Europe. I'm all for amateurism, but the NCAA is attacking the problem too late in the game. They've got to clean up the AAU and high schools.

Cheick Diallo case remains ongoing

How is it that nobody knows anything? No leaks. No guesses as to what the problem is. Was this place a legit school? Wasn't it accredited by the state? For better or worse, some of these kids are playing at these basketball academies in order to get into a college and from there the NBA. That isn't a crime. Why doesn't the NCAA work with these schools in advance so that everything is transparent?

Kansas may face $42M tax tab to former Pizza Hut magnate

Did the guy at least pay taxes in Florida? If he didn't, or considerably less, that should tell you something about the tax codes. If you are rich you can move you and your money always one step ahead of the tax man.

Man in Kansas voter fraud case says charge surprised him

Wait - you mean that if you are rich and have property that can be taxed in multiple states, you can't vote in each of those states? I guess that's why the Kochs have to buy the politicians in each state. This is more underwhelming than a Lincoln Chaffee debate performance.

Gov. Brownback reshuffles hundreds of state workers

This would make more sense if the new and old classifications were published and a sampling of how workers were effected. Also, this would seem faired if there was a civil service commission (outside of the governor's office) that oversaw the civil service classification system.

Jenkins endorses Fiorina in GOP presidential race

Hitching the wagon early. Probably nothing to lose. No one is going to hold it against her. After all there are so many candidates to pass around and try out.

Kansas education chief: It's time to redesign public schools

I'll give him the benefit of the doubt, but it's not the schools' fault by a long shot. Schools are a reflection of society - we don't know what we want for our kids. With two kids in HS now, I know the pressures. If you want to get into a Big 10 school or other major conference state school, your kid must be in honors courses and tutoring for the ACT/SAT. Long gone are the days when your state's HS diploma got your kid into its state's schools. Want to save money on college? Then you'd better have your kid in AP and dual credit courses. At what point do you realize that your kid isn't Div. 1 college material? Then what? Why should career tech training be for post HS and be at private expense? We are wasting a lot of tax dollars on college tracking students who never attend college or do so for only a short time. We want our schools to teach our kids to be good citizens and to be able to read and write. But what else, really? Critical thinking and communication skills. All well and good, but do we as a society even value those in our day to day activities? Wouldn't be able to tell it from the quality of our media and political discourse.
